The Maritime History of the Great Lakes
Lillie May (Barge), aground, 7 Dec 1875

Full Text

The tow barge LILLIE MAY, of the Northern Transportation &
Coal Co.'s fleet, is fast on a reef near Marblehead. She is one
of the TRADER's tow. On Monday a tug started with her from
Cleveland for this port, and when off Cedar Pt., in the lake, the
tug lost her way in a heavy fog, and let the barge go, telling
the captain that he could probably sail into the harbor. The
result was the barge went on to a reef, as stated, and is now
fast. An effort was made to get her off yesterday, but she could
not be moved. We understand that the tug which brought her from
Cleveland got aground in the vicinity of Cedar Pt., but got off
without damage.
